Pierre Players Canceling

Pierre Players Canceling "A Little Piece of Heaven"

Instead Offering a Virtual Production

Pierre Players regretfully is canceling its next production “A Little Piece of Heaven,” which was scheduled for Feb. 26-28 and March 4-6, 2021. Due to concerns with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there were not enough people at auditions to cast the production. Many who did audition are now involved in a one-act play titled "The First Step,” which Pierre Players will offer virtually in late February/early March. Written by Kathleen Maule Holen, the play was inspired by a true story of New Year’s resolutions, friendship and purpose in Hot Springs, S.D. Be watching for more details about how you can view the virtual production. Pierre Players is planning to offer “A Little Piece of Heaven” at a later date to be announced.

Upcoming Auditions:

Upcoming Auditions: "Radium Girls"

AUDITION DATE: March 1, 2021

Written with warmth and humor, Radium Girls is a fast-moving, highly theatrical ensemble piece for 9 to 10 actors, who play more than 30 parts—friends, co-workers, lovers, relatives, attorneys, scientists, consumer advocates, and myriad interested bystanders. Called a "powerful" and "engrossing" drama by critics, Radium Girls offers a wry, unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsessions with health, wealth and the commercialization of science.
